    i dont remember even posting this.. but actually, i am building a computer and i do have a problem. well, i think i have a problem.. ok.. here it is. i have picked out all the parts for my computer and i plan on ordering them soon. the motherboard i have picked out does not have an onboard video chipset, so i'm ordering a pci video card. dont you have to install drivers before a video card will work? or will my monitor just automatically recognize it after i put everything together and turn the computer on?

  • mattdowns Dec 03, 2008

    i want even have an operating system on the computer the first time i turn it on.

  • mattdowns Dec 05, 2008

    every card i have looked at doesnt say anything about windows support. but i can probably assume most new nvidia cards wont have a problem displaying video on the monitor when i first turn it on?

  • mattdowns Dec 07, 2008

    hey thanks for the help.

    Well simply put, if you install the card you'll see stuff when the computer turns on. After that inside windows you'd need to aldrivers. Without the drivers windows will work but you might have a fairly simple looking screen. i.e. not enough colors and low resolution (all icons would look huge)

If your buying a New Video Card then then it will come with a driver disc anyway (or atleast it should do).
As for if Windows will pick it up automatically, that really depends on how old/new the video card is that you decide to buy, and also what version of Windows your running. You can say almostt any old/new video cards will be compatable under Windows XP Service Pack 2,  however fairly Old Models of Cards probably won't work on Vista.

    Sorry yeah forgot you were building it from scratch :-).
    Yeah when you put windows on it should pick ut the card, if you know the card you purchased is supported by Vista then you should have no problems.

  • Gav Shaw Dec 05, 2008

    Yeah, well thinking about it, nearly all Motherboards come with Shared Sound & Video Built on Board, so yeah you'll be fine :-).

    Cheers for the Rating :-)

I 'd like to build motherbaord


Go to university and study electronics and computer systems. Then buy some very expensive manufacturing kit and "bob is your uncle" it should only take you about 5 years before you are ready to start. If you want to build a computer from parts it is easy (I know because even I can do it) Start with a motherboard they come with an instruction manual.
